In Sanskrit, the word Sangha, means inseparable. On the last Saturday of every month, the Charter for Compassion offers a 90-minute practice of people coming together to be in a Circle, a Sangha. Our Sangha is led by Orla O’Sullivan, education director at Plum Village, the retreat center started by the Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hahn.
Usually a Sangha focuses on six areas of togetherness.
- Body. Being physically present in one place.
- Mindfulness Trainings.
- Sharing. Dharma discussion. Nonverbal action. Presence. (View, insight, understanding, wisdom)
- Speech. Loving speech. Calm and gentle.
- Material resources are shared equally.
- Happy and joyful. Synthesis of all ideas.
